    (MD-733 module 716)

    At a guess, I'd say it was an early 90's version of the current Duro series ( with marlin on case). I've never seen one quite like that before but strange colour schemes were all the rage in 1992 judging by the catalogue.

    The last 2-4 pages give you some idea of the colourful Casios in vogue at the time. So, I suspect this one is the same vintage, perhaps even earlier.
    Does the auction have any useful info ? I'd be curious to find out what it is.

    The auction says it's a triple calender, moon face diver. 20bar. It also says it's a man's size. Not much to go on.

    The moon phase function certainly puts it in the late 80's to early 90's but apart from that I'd say it's quite rare if a little garish

    Does anyone actually like that? I need therapy after looking at it.

    I think it's cool in an 80's way. Maybe more for a girl that a boy. But then again, during the 80's a lot of guys were wearing make-up.

    It's either awful or wonderful - can't decide which. Leaning to awful...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Pretty awful... I have a similar model, a RKA-705 [716] that's a horrible combination of orange, yellow and purple on an otherwise nice stainless case. I bought it because I liked the huge marlin on the caseback. The movement is jewelled (five jewels) and appears to be made, or partly made, in France (France ebauches is inscribed on the movement). Not really that big though - not if you're used to G-Shocks.
